Welcome to Shanghai American School, where your child's dreams will take flight.

Thank you for your interest in Shanghai American School. By joining our community, your child will be supported by our mission-driven approach and nurtured in their journey towards becoming lifelong learners, compassionate individuals, and fearless dreamers. Everyone at SAS is deeply committed to student growth and development – both inside and outside of the classroom.  

Our Admissions Team is always excited to meet prospective students who have the potential to thrive in our community. We invite you to discover the world-class, transformative educational experience that awaits you at SAS by registering for an upcoming tour or event here. We would love to meet you and your family to show you what SAS is all about. 

Kindly note, as the 2023-24 school year has now begun, seat availability is now extremely limited across many grade levels on both campuses. We highly recommend you contact our Admissions Team directly before submitting an application for 2023-24. Applications for the 2024-2025 school year are now open.

Welcome, future Eagles!
